The Reds announced today that they are firing Wayne Kirvsky and are naming Walt Jocketty as their new General Manager. I would say most saw this deal coming after the Reds decided to hire Jocketty this past offseason.
Krivsky did not do a terrible job, though. He has built this team around a solid offense, but has failed to land pitchers that would make a significant impact. In a couple years, it is very possible that many will be saying Krivsky built this team to success.
